Today i'm posting all those things which are on my mind. i think this is the final one... Everyone seems to be on a mission to promote ele weaps as underused and under-rated, so here's the bee in my bonnet that's equally undervalued - the lesser hiryu. I used to use them for light PVP (honour/petball + all kill/lesser dismount ability/nerve strike/LS/LS gimp ftw) when they were actually effective and LS used to do 100 damage with honouring players lol. that wasn't overpowered, was it? Ayways, back to the point. Let's set the scene - Dread horn soloing. I've been going in on my sammy after collecting keys with my disco tamer. I'd been thinking thi is fairly tame, how can i squeeze more damage out of this template... so i figured I'd bring a lesser along. I'd get to the key spot and log out/in to summon my lesser, whilst riding my swampy. I'd use the main key after casting EoO and drinking some pots, run up to the Dread, honour and whack away. Once i've got a rhythm I'll shot "all kill" and target. Now, i would have thought dread would swap targets and kill my hiryu, but he hasn't yet... as long as he targets me first we're good for the whole fight. With a bladed staff that means my time has dropped from ~15 mins to ~9-10 mins. I think this is not only because of my hiryus damage output (about 35 per hit, with quite a few double strikes) but also due to his ability to lower the dreads physical resist, allowing non-crits and non AI to do more damage. I think this will work on rikki when i can eventually toe-toe him, as occasionally at the moment i have to joust - still finding the right weap - but who else? Putrifier? Semidar? Melisand? Does anyone else do this? Which peerless/bosses/champs switch targets - it's hard to tell when fighting solo! NB: this is not a trained lesser, but I'm considering finding an exceptional one and putting in the time just for this cause.... Again has anyone tried this before i commit?
